Jackson Jr. Leaves Mayo Clinic, Intentions Unclear
The recently re-elected Congressman is reportedly leaving the Mayo Clinic after several weeks, but a spokesperson from the clinic says he doesn’t know where Jackson is.
Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. has departed from the Mayo clinic, according to the Chicago Tribune.
A spokesperson from the clinic reported the information earlier today, but said he’s not sure where Jackson went, reports say.
The newly re-elected Congressman has been at Mayo since October. He previously spent several weeks during the summer there, during which he was diagnosed with Bipolar II disorder. All throughout, Jackson has eluded nearly all media outlets.
In addition to his illness, Jackson faces a federal investigation for allegedly misusing his campaign funds and is reportedly in plea deal talks that could involve jail time.
After nearly six months on a leave of absence from Congress, it’s uncertain what Jackson’s future plans hold in store.
